on the serious and chemical weapons use and this most recent incident was not the first, the united states would support its military were the supreme military council specifically so we are not arming. but actually the supreme military council. as you have seen in the press, that has come out that there has been a lot of complaints about the late delivery of those weapons. there are several reasons for that. one is arguments over how effect of this can be because the fight in serious has ended up in the division of the country. some call it a stalemate and whatever we provide to them would not leave to the toppling of the assad regime but only sustaining the fight. the other more enduring argument has been supplying the smc wholesale that could and likely would leave those weapons into falling into the hands of the extremists. as it is currently construct did, that is a distinct possibility. however, i am not rejecting this as a vehicle for supporting the opposition but rather, and we talked about this in the paper, and i think this is also partially born from the findings of my colleague, what

. king inspire us with the "i have a dream" part of his speech, the part that was the call to action was the fierce urgency of now part of his speech. in that time dr. king says we refuse to take the tranquillity drug of gradualism. we must move forward, and forward we will. if it was fiercely then urgent, it certainly is now. 50 years ago there were only five african-american members of the house of representatives. there was no congressional black cauc caucus. today there are 43 members. we want more but there are 43. they're led by congresswoman marsha fudge who you heard from and they are the conscience of the congress. in that blauk caucus we have the privilege of serving with john lewis, some of us for over 25 years in the congress, and aren't we proud of that. i also want to mention that 50 years ago, though he was not a member of congress at the time that john conyers was one of three people invited to the white house to meet with president john f. kennedy following the civil rights march, the march for jobs, justice and freedom, who is with us. 50 years ago we had the first

not just the civil rights movement but it reminds us of who we are as americans. >> what is the dream? was delivered right here. imagine what it was like to be here 50 years ago. hundreds of thousands of people came together to be part of a call to action.there were rumors that coming here would be dangerous. there were fears that nobody would show up. in the end, it was a success because people believed in the power of standing for something. that speech by dr. king was not called, "i have a dream." it was called, normalcy never again. it was about opportunity for all people. >> it was about looking forward to where we need to go as a country, which reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from 50 years ago. he said, the future does not belong to those who are fearful of gold projects and new ideas, but it longs to those -- belongs to those who can blend passion and courage. >> in 1963, i was in the mind of god, as my mother would say. my parents, an interracial couple, knew the importance of the message that was delivered here. their marriage in 1958 was illegal in the state where th

after the march on washington, let us remember that dr. king's last march was never finished. the poor people's campaign was never finished. some 50 years after the march on washington, while if you were -- you are people as a percentage in our country are poor, more as a number in our country are poor. while the ladder of opportunity extends to the heavens for our people today, more are tethered at the bottom and falling off everyday. say that thean distance between a child's aspirations represented by the top of that letter and a family situation at the bottom of that is the exactder measurement of that aaron's level of frustration. as we go home today, let us remember that the dreamer was also a doer. as we turn on our tvs tomorrow and see people walking out of places where they are being forced to survive on $7.25 by the thousands, let us commit to join them in fighting to lift up the bottom. at the top of that letter has extended, the tethers at the bottom must be unleashed. let us not just be dreamers. let us recommit to be doers. thank you, and god bless.

solely about deterring and degrading the future use of chemical weapons by the syrian regime. full stop, an end of story and if we were aware of large-scale use of chemical weapons by the opposition i would be making the same argument and the same recommendations. .. let me turn -- i'm going to make sol progress, as i said, the second part of my speech is deal with the action motion. i want to address those and take more interventions. whatever disagreement will there other over the complex in syria. i -- the world came together to agree in 1925 treaty and outlaw the use of chemical weapons. international law since that time reflected a determination the event of the war should never be repeated. it put a like in the sand. whatever happens the weapons must not be used. they have crossed the line, in my view, and there should be consequence. it's the first use of chemical weapons this century. for at least 100 years. interfering in another country's affairs should be undertaken except for the most exceptional circumstance. it is must be a humanitarian catastrophe and a last result.

for "the last word" with lawrence o'donnell, thank you for joining us, have a great night. >>> 50 years ago tonight, reporters filing stories on a demonstration in washington noted three things. it was peaceful, it was far larger than anyone expected. and a young preacher departed from his planned text. those unplanned sentences have never been forgotten. >> nbc news presents the march on washington. >> i have a dream. >> 50 years later, the dream lives on. >> it was in the middle of battles to break down the walls of apartheid in america. >> martin luther king jr. made a speech, but he also delivered a sermon. >> my father watched from the white house as dr. king and y thousands of others recommitted us to higher ideals. >> injustice is injustice everywhere. >> he gazed at the wall of segme segregation and saw that the power of love could bring it down. >> martin luther king jr. did not live and die to hear his heirs whine about political grid lock. >> the arc may have bent towards justice, but it doesn't bend on its own. >> for all who are willing to take the flame for justice, i know tha
. >> for those of us who are from the south, 50 years ago we received our marching orders hen the prophet dr. king jr. quoted the prophet isiah, that have a dream. this is our hope. this is the faith that we go back to the south with. those are our marching orders. this is the faith that we go back to the south with. yes, the south where some are still trying to fight the civil war. yes, the south. where we are witnessing this vicious attack on voting rights and the blatant voter suppression by one particular political party. es, the south where young boys can't walk the street of his father's neighborhood without eing profiled, confronted, stalked, and finally murdered. watched over 45 days where governor because of the relentless protests of 20 plus,000 people reluctantly appointed a reluctant prosecutor who reluctantly put together a prosecuting team who did a poor job in presenting their case. watching a murderer go free, watching our community and our country try to go back 50 years . we walk away with the faith in the words of the prophet isiah once again that they that wait upon the l
are in the cnn "newsroom." thank you for joining us. news reported first here on cnn about syria. syria is agreeing to allow u.n. inspectors to the full site suspected of a chemical attack. many people that died were women and children. the syrian government continues to deny its forces used chemical weapons and yet another sign the u.s. is moving closer to involvement in syria, two key members of congressional foreign affairs committees from both sides of the aisle say they expect the united states to strike syria following the reports of chemical weapons attacks. the pentagon has already sent four warships with cruise missiles to the region. meanwhile, rush why's ministry of foreign affairs is warning against jumping to conclusions on chemical weapons before the u.n. investigation is complete. so let me bring in cnn's pentagon correspondent chris lawrence in washington and cnn's frederi frederick pleitgen. when can we expect to see the inspectors at the suspected chemical attack site? >> reporter: the u.n. is saying they'll head to the site tomorrow. they didn't tell us what time tomo
is going to be very you can expect where democrats are in the majority, 54 of us, right, and where there was a willingness to get it done, do expect something out of the house of representatives that is better, from an ideological point of view, it will be more difficult. it is what i think. people, -- youe legalize people, they got to get a job, right, where there is healthcare. we know the american people to their health care through their employment, 80%. they will have more opportunities to get employment. their wages will increase, which means their ability to buy better food, to have a saner life, i mean, the stress that must be on those communities of people, the housing they have to live in. economic social and standards that will improve, but they will have to rely on emergency care because that was what was adopted in the senate. even though there is more than enough money saved according to cbo, instead of spending $45 billion over the next 10 years amount we spend $45 billion putting more control agents on the border. those are the decisions we are going to make. they a
. >> 50 years later, extraordinary. of course, also extraordinary events ahead of us. unfortunately, perhaps, our nation called into conflict again in the coming days. we'll talk about syria in a minute. we look back at this speech and rank this speech probably as one of the greatest in american history. it's easy to forget 50 years later that a lot of people didn't want martin luther king to deliver this speech including jfk who tried to get him to call the civil rights march and speech off. he refused and kennedy was left with no option but to support this speech and the rest, as they say, is history. >> it is. president kennedy watched the speech being carried live on the three television networks. his remark after it was finished was he is damn good. one master of oratory understood it. i would argue that what dr. king said today 50 years ago was the most important piece of american oratory from the gettysburg address through our own time. it redefined what it meant to be an american. it carried forward what jefferson started and what lincoln ratified and what king was urging us

"special report" is next. >>> the obama administration consults with allies, finally agrees to talk to congressional leaders before pulling the trigger on syria. this is "special report." good evening, i'm bret baier. the only shots being fired continue to be of the rhetorical variety tonight as the anticipation grows of a u.s. military attack against syria. the u.s. is so far playing by the rules with other nations. however, the lawmakers here at home were until today definitely feeling left out. we have fox team coverage. melissa francis in new york has economic implications of a military move on syria. catherine herridge looks at how limited strikes worked before. james rosen at the state department looks at the possible blow back the action may carry for our allies and adversaries. we begin with chief white house correspondent ed henry with where things stand now. hello, ed. >> reporter: good evening, bret. fox learned tomorrow the white house will brief top house and senate members about
security counsel. if there's no u.n. authorization, the u.s. would lead a possible strike. but one official says, quote, we don't want to do anything on our own. u.s. allies must commit both resources and political will. we'll have more from washington in a few moments. but first back to the region, martha. >> thanks, jon. let's bring in colonel steve, a veteran fighter pilot who flew missions in the gulf war and was a deputy secretary of state. welcome, colonel. let's get to the question about the cruise missile strikes. the white house said there will be no boots on the ground. how would these work out of the mediterranean? >> there are a couple ways it could be done. one is by launching them from ships at sea out in the eastern mediterranean or from submari submarines. it's a long, 20-foot sort of flying torpedo, and has wings and a little jet engine that allows it to fly at low altit e altitudes over the sea. it can fly through mountain canyons and hit with accuracies where you can pick third window on the left. that is good. but we have to remember they're small warheads, and

and mitch the senate republican lear mitch mcconnell. it was held at u.s. capitol. here's a portion of the event that runs just under an hour. we are back live at 11:00 eastern time with the ceremony on the mall on the steps of the lincoln memorial. [applause] >> ladies and gentlemen, the honorable nancy pelosi. >> good afternoon. thank you for bringing us together for this congressional bipartisan observance of the 50 year anniversary of the march on washington. wasn't it exciting to see the enthusiasm and the film of the people of the day? who could have expected so many of us would be here who had ties to all that was owing on? who could suspect that we would all be with john lewis? [applause] attorney general, mr. mayor, you honor us with your presence. .he fierce urgency of now words rang out across the national mall, the call echoed in households across america. the summons ignited a movement to make real the promise of democracy. of course everyone knows the "i had a dream" speech, but the fierce urgency of now part of it was not only an inspiration, it was a motivation to ac

some of us claiming to push for change lost our way. the anguish of assassinations set up self-defeating rites. legitimate grievances against police brutality tipped into excuse-making for criminal behavior. racial politics could cut both ways as the transformative message of unity and brotherhood was drowned up to speed by the language of recriticism nation. the chance for all americans to work hard, get ahead, was too often framed as a mere desire for government support. as if we had no agency in our own liberation. as if poverty was an excuse for not raising your child, bigotry of others was reason to give up on yourself. all of that history is how progress stalled. >> bill: how progress stalled. that was a great statement. accurate and important. fair-minded americans want all of their fellow citizens to succeed. i believe most of us of fair-minded. but self-reliance and hard work is the key to success in life no matter what color you are. president obama and many in the civil rights industry believe that government must provide -- provide for those who fail. even if it's t
